Movie Fighters is a podcast in which Chris Sims and Matt Wilson beat up movies.

To be more technical about it, the duo (also the hosts of the War Rocket Ajax podcast) watches movies, recaps them, and jokes around about them a whole bunch. Sometimes they like the movies and sometimes they hate them. That's part of the fun. If you've read their movie recaps on ComicsAlliance when they were writing those, you probably are familiar with the format.

If you have no idea what any of that means, here's an example of one of our bonus episodes (where we watch cartoon episodes rather than movies). This one's about Rambo: The Animated Series.

For the past year or so, Chris and Matt have been posting episodes of Movie Fighters on Bandcamp for $1 each. They've been hearing from fans that Bandcamp is a tad inconvenient. There's no functionality to press a button and immediately have an episode on an iPod or iPhone.

That's why we're changing things up.

If this campaign succeeds, Movie Fighters will become a completely free podcast, available on iTunes, Stitcher, RSS, and other podcasty places. We'll be fully funded for a year (26 episodes, one every two weeks).

(NOTE: This doesn't mean the episodes that are on Bandcamp now will be available on iTunes. Those will stay there forever, to make it fair for the people who already paid for those over the past year. HOWEVER, you can get a download code for some or all of those episodes by donating to this campaign.)

Not only will changing over to a free podcasts make things more convenient for our current listeners, it'll also make it a lot easier for fans of our other online work to find the show and listen to it. It's a win-win all around.

Cool Stuff You Can Get

Not only can backers who are new to the show get episode downloads of our Bandcamp shows, fans who have been listening all along can also get some awesome swag!

Backers have the opportunity to snag a copy of this awesome art print by Sub-Atomic Party Girls artist Erica Henderson:

 ...or a Movie Fighters logo (new or classic) t-shirt:

(Shaw Bros. logo design by J. Gonzo

...or you could earn an invitation to a special, one-time only, backer-exclusive live episode of Movie Fighters, where we'll be watching the 2000 Shaft remake! It's available on Netflix, so you'll be able to watch along with us!

Stretch Goals

We've got those, too! 

If we reach the $8,750 level, we'll record a new, backer-exclusive bonus episode where we'll watch an episode of Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, and we'll send it to every single backer who donates $5 or more!

If we get up to a total of $10,000, we'll be sending everyone who donates $20 or more a Movie Fighters Bingo card! Play along with us as we find the most common traits of the movies we watch!

If we get to $12,000, everyone who donates $5 or more will get a free, extra-special Movie Fighters episode (of a full feature film) exclusively for backers!  (We'll reveal which movie if we hit the bingo card goal!)

And if we go beyond that, we'll come up with more!

Risks and challenges

Most of the digital content we have is available immediately to send, so that shouldn't be a problem. The t-shirts and posters will take some time to print up and ship, and we'll have to schedule our live episode at a time that's convenient for everyone, so we'll likely have to plan that well in advance.

As for the podcast itself, we're already making it. This will simply change the venue to something much easier for listeners. And after this, it'll be free!
